  • Trying to access CDB via python api fails due to an apparent suds cache/permission problem.
  • Test python script attached [ ]
  • The problem seems to be with the permissions for the /tmp/suds directory
  • Works fine on a single-user machine. Verified that it works on my single-user machine -- see attached log check_cdb_single.txt
  • But with multiple users, when /tmp/suds exists under user1's name/group, then user2 is unable to remove/write to that directory causing the failure -- see attached log check_cdb_multi.txt

[ the installation test failures on the IIT CentOS machine are related to the scripts and code trying to access CDB ]

As a workaround, I got the permissions changed on /tmp/suds so that it was writable by others and that fixed it,
but I think there needs to be a more robust solution.
